A PRO-PALESTINIAN RIOT forced Benjamin Netanyahu to cancel his speech at Concordia University in Montreal:

There was a long standoff between the pro-Palestinian demonstrators and the students who had come to hear Netanyahu speak. The demonstrators were pleased they had stopped him talking.

“There’s no free speech for hate speech,” said Palestinian activist David Battistuzzi.

Robert Fisk will be speaking at GMU, and Hanan Ashrawi will be speaking at Colorado College, on September 11. It’s unlikely that they’ll be silenced. It’s doubtful that they’ll even be asked tough questions about their support for terrorists and terrorism.

Yet dissent is supposedly being crushed in America.
